Just another day at the office with Audra Lynn killing it on vocals, as we contend once more for the release of promises that God has spoken in His Word. Singers and musicians, don’t lose heart. Keep singing! Keep playing! The day of the Lord is drawing closer and We will see healing, salvation, and deliverance as we continue to cry, “Lord, stretch out Your hand!”

What matter is that you're flowering. #Dontloseheart 🧡

Things you need to hear. // Dear friend, don’t lose heart. He hasn’t forgotten about you. All of these seeds you’ve sewn in tears and joy have not fallen in the wasteland. Every seed, He’s nurturing with intention and great purpose. In your waiting, He is doing. #dearfriend#newseasons#purpose#dontloseheart
#Close your eyes, clear your mind... Sometimes the battles we face in the real world can get the better of us, after all, were all human right?
#Close your eyes, clear your mind... This here is King Mickeys Star Seeker Key Blade from the Kingdom Hearts series.
When times get hard and dark, remember to forge yourself some mental weaponary, to help you fight your shadows and demons lurking in your heart and mind, just like king Mickey and the team from Kingdom Hearts.
#Close your eyes, clear your mind... The battles we face in life aren't always easy; its a never ending battle to maintain balance and peace of mind, everything has its time and place, happy, sad, goodtimes, bad, like a dear friend said to me recently;
And always remember to appreciate the love and support of those closest to you, remember them and use those memories to help you fight the dark things, in dark places, remember their light when you can't seem to find your own and when it all seems like chaos and all hope is lost remember:
Don’t give up.
It will get hard, but don’t lose heart.
There’s a #reward waiting for you.

Enjoy your week!
Yes, this was one of those " weeks" when things begin falling apart with no "red flags" to prepare you for it. Negativity will immediately kick in and you will begin questioning the why, what, when, ....
If you allow positivity to change your mindset you will see it from a different perspective " things may just be falling into place. Only patience and time will allow you to look back and have a moment of ahhhh... it now makes sense. #fallingintoplace #dontloseheart
I never started a company to be alone. I didn't even dream this big on my own. Money spent was never meant to be just that- money spent. And yet, here I am, by myself building something that was always meant to be done with others.
BUT, when you find yourself on a road where all might seem lost, don't lose heart. Often times we feel lost, confused, perplexed, disoriented, unclear, unsure and bewildered. Those feelings will not last. It's a sign you are out of your comfort zone. It's a sign that you're about to grow. It's the rough your diamond is being worked out of.

This is me just over a year ago. Keto had really kicked in and delivered the goods after three months. Gym was consistent, my nutrition was on lock and I was feeling confidence in myself and in my skin, I had never felt before. After a really hard and inconsistent time in the second half of 2018, I am slowly coming back from feeling uncomfortable and insecure in my skin. We went to Newport Beach in summer 2017 and for the first time In my life, wore a bikini without being covered up. Summer 2018, I just wanted to go home. I didn’t swim without shorts, actually I didn’t swim at all... actually I didn’t leave the umbrella shade. I could feel that I was not where I wanted to be physically and I lost confidence I myself. But that’s my motivator. That’s part of my why. I didn’t gain all of the weight back. I was 85kg in 2017 at my heaviest and after getting down to 64kg, I have gained and maintained around 68-70kg. Admittedly I have more muscle on my body now than then but even so... I still feel uncomfortable and insecure in certain clothing. I don’t like it.... but I’m not gonna sit back and complain about it. I have to be kind to myself and remember it took time to get here. It’s gonna take time to get out. I’m still early in my journey to being healthier and feeling comfortable in my skin again. Reflecting on why I’m doing all of this... I don’t want to be weak and frail. I want to be strong and able. I want to be healthy. I want to feel good and looking good doesn’t hurt either. I can see changes happening already and what I focus on in my mind is important. As it is with anything you wanna achieve. I don’t have measurements I want to get to. I just want to feel comfortable in my skin and be the healthiest I can be to the best of my ability. Interested to see if keto a second time after an inconsistent time can have the same effect as the first time around. I have done it before so I know I can do it again. The question is... how much do I want it? #dontloseheart#notgivingup#blahblahblah
Galatians 6:9 is one of those verses that the Holy Spirit has used often to encourage me in many long hard seasons where it has seemed as though all my effort, prayer, and self-sacrifice wasn't producing any appreciable fruit. One field of harvest in my life took 12 years of hard work to produce an appreciable harvest. Though I grew weary and came close to losing heart in all the years of poor crop yields (especially when many others advised me it was time to move on), the Lord kept assuring me that I would reap a bountiful harvest if I didn't give up too soon. I am so thankful I listened and obeyed! Our family and all those around us are benefitting from the abundant harvest that is finally being reaped. So, let me encourage you not to lose heart. Your due season is coming and you will relish in the abundant sweetness of your harvest!
Feeling so blessed and encouraged right now!! Yesterday I taught my second week of online English classes and I am just blown away again how God worked everything out!!
Teaching English to Chinese students is something I’ve wanted to do since I was 12; and after many years of researching, dead ends, and a lot of prayer - here I am!! I was also reminded again how there is no such thing as an overnight success; if you want to do something you have to pursue it with tenacity!! .
And I want this to encourage you: whatever you’ve been wanting to do and it just hasn’t worked out yet; don’t give up!!Keep working towards it and remember the Bible says that in due season we shall reep if we do not lose heart 🙌🏼

Don't Lose your Passion ..
Or the fighter that's inside you .. 🖤
In this journey call life, we will have mountains to climb and valleys to cross. We are one part water, one part dust, and God uses this journey to break, mould and shape us into jars of clay he can use.
So when it gets really tough and lonely, don't lose heart because we know we are in the potter's hand and he's making something beautiful out of the ugly you may find yourself in.
These words are some of my favorites ever, and meaningful to share today because six years ago today, my dad (whose handwriting this belongs to) went home to be with Jesus. I miss him, but these milestone days have become moments to mark the sweet memories we had and reflect on how faithful the Lord has been in every season of my life.
I’m thankful for every challenge, disappointment, or unknown I’ve faced and come through over the years. Some have been harder than others, but it’s made me who I am today.
In fact, even my story, the way I began hand-lettering and sharing here with you... it came about "seemingly" out of nowhere in the same season I lost my dad. It was nothing I tried, or even wanted to orchestrate on my own... Only God could bring something like this to life. I’ll never look at that loss, that death, without also seeing the gift He brought to the surface for me at the very same time.
I know not every one gets a story like that. But I also know that God really does work out all the details of our lives to bring something good in and through us. To give us purpose, to put courage in us, to stir up passion for the things of God and cause us to dream big and believe for the impossible.
I know how powerful a father’s words are, and I’ve often shared these meaningful ones my dad left me. I love that so many of you have found comfort from this “dad” blessing for yourselves.
I don’t know what your dad situation is, whether you have an absent or distant father, or your dad has passed away, or for whatever reason, you don't have a father or grandfather who is able to speak a simple word of encouragement like this over you, but I invite you to take this reminder as a Dad’s encouragement straight for you.
I hope you know you have a Heavenly Father who loves you very much, who has good plans for you, who wants to see you walk in the fullness and purpose of all He created you to be and do. Your Father is proud of you and His heart is for you.
I know God has an important plan for your life. Things can change overnight, don’t lose heart. Lots of life to come.
Started PT today, and I'm still trying to process everything. I did not leave feeling hopeful or optimistic like I did every time I left my Sports Med Drs office. The range of motion I've lost in a month (thanks stupid boot!) is sad. Don't even talk about my calf atrophy, that's a really sensitive subject I've yet to come to terms with. Well, I had until people started pointing it out and making comments about it. I couldn't freaking bear weight or walk for a month what do you expect? I didn't get the 'choose-joy-look-at-the-positives' kinda vibe from my PT, and I'm not exactly sure why. He's also a runner, so he says he "gets it," but I still don't feel like he does. I've been rather down all afternoon, and I'm still trying to process the "4-6 WEEKS until we run again" approach that he has. I'm being patient, I want to heal correctly, and I'm staying positive, but I'm also human. I haven't ran in 5 weeks and now it's looking like Thanksgiving (end of November) before I will again. My heart hurt and I just kept running (no pun intended) all the scenarios in my mind.
When we finally got home this evening all I wanted to do was just go for a bike ride. I needed to feel some fresh air and go outside. An hour ride with Emma and Burley, and my new streamers (!), made me feel much better!
On the bright side to PT, because there is ALWAYS a bright side, EVERY single activity/workout/movement the therapist had me do I was able to do completely normal, completely pain free, and nothing needed modifying. 🎉 Friday I go back and get in the pool. I'm not looking forward to that, but I'm going to show up and put in the work anyways. I will keep choosing joy and appreciating the little things like WALKING even if others, especially PTs, don't.
Swipe left to check out my beautiful new streamers blowin' in the wind. These bright, joyful, sparkly streamers were custom made for me and they really helped cheer up my hurt heart. Thank you @retroyourride , I needed this little pick me up tonight. 💕
